And continue the legal battle for his exoneration

Family and friends continue to fight for the freedom of 33-year-old San Pedro resident William Godoy, who was charged for the murder of Alfredo Cowo. Godoy, a mechanic from the DFC area of San Pedro Town, was formally arrested and charged on Friday, January 19th for the murder of Cowo.

Godoy’s Attorney Oscar Selgado told The San Pedro Sun they are fighting for the charges of murder to be withdrawn, as there is not enough evidence to demonstrate that he is responsible for Cowo’s murder. He stated that the main witness, Cowo’s girlfriend Reyes, has left the country and that in fact, there is no registration of her departure at the office of immigration. “I checked with the immigration, and they have never registered a Paola Reyes in the country, which means that it could not even be her real name. I believe she left because she knew that Godoy was not the person responsible for the murder of Cowo,” he said. Selgado also added that they have received a copy of text messages from one of Godoy friends, which shows that she and he were messaging via Facebook between 12AM and 12:23AM on that morning of Tuesday, January 16th. In the conversation, Godoy was asking his friend to accompany him to the casino located north of the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge. She declined the offer due to the late hour and the conversation ended and Godoy reportedly went to sleep. “It was around that same time that Cowo was being shot near the Central Park, so there’s no way it could have been Godoy,” said Selgado.

William Godoy is a free man: murder charges withdrawn

After being imprisoned for over a year for the murder of Alfredo Cowo, 33-year-old San Pedro resident William Godoy was set free from prison on Wednesday, February 27th after murder charges were withdrawn. At the court hearing inside the in San Pedro Town courtroom, the magistrate stated that no substantial evidence was provided to conclude that Godoy was Cowo’s murderer.

Many of Godoy’s family members and friends gathered outside the San Pedro Police Department to welcome him with hugs and smiles. “We are happy that he is finally out. Godoy told The San Pedro Sun that he is glad to be out of jail after being incarcerated for over 13 months. “It feels so good to be out and I am happy to be back with my family. It is really sad that I was kept in prison all these past months unjustifiably,” he said. Godoy has always maintained his innocence.
